HANOI--Four Taiwanese-invested companies have been included on this year's list of the 500 largest enterprises in Vietnam, which was recently unveiled by Vietnam Report Joint Stock Company and Vietnam Net.
On the VNR500 List 2013, the top company was PetroVietnam, followed by Samsung Vietnam Electronics Ltd. and Vietnam National Petroleum Group (Petrolimex), a report on vietnamnet.vn showed.
The four Taiwanese-invested enterprises on the list were ranked 120th, 270th, 305th and 440th, respectively, according to the report.

The report said that state-owned conglomerates and companies dominated this year's VNR500 List, with eight of them in the top 10.

VNR500 is based on international standards and determined by several factors, including profit, growth rates, labor, owner equity and total assets.
